    I am using a theme called "Freshlife". The theme is mostly blue, and Im trying to change this to #22B14C
    I've checked the whole CSS and can't find any blue color that I can change??

    Here is my Style.css
    my website is http://www.thetechn.com/
    I'm trying to change the blue bar under the category links and the blue "hover links" over the page names and category names to #22B14C
    Thank you.

    you'll find the colors in /styles/default.css:


    it should work if you copy all the styles from that stylesheet and paste them into custom.css, with the new color codes inserted.

    Solved. Hidden css file controlling colors

    the files are only 'hidden' if you use the dashboard - appearance -editor;

    if you use, for instance, Firebug http://getfirebug.com/ to investigate the involved styles, it will give you clues in which stylesheets to look for the styles; then either overwrite these in an appropriate stylesheet, or edit these stylesheets using ftp http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_Files

    Hey guys,

    I am trying to do a similar thing with my website http://www.nowayin.net

    I want to change that blue line under the category navigation, the blue that shows up when you hover over the category navigation as well as the blue featured in the page navigation at the top.

    I'm very new to css and always afraid of messing something up. Is there a simple way to replace the blue (#something) with red (#fb0e0e)?

    In other posts I see people talking about creating a custom style that controls the colors just like you guys have here. If that is the only way, what do I need to copy over and where can I add the color i prefer?

    Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance,

    Hi Mariusvdh,

    You're much more likely to receive help if you post on your own thread.
